New M-Series® and ISF® Series HDMI Performance Indicators Show the True Resolution of the Signal Going to the TV
One of the key and breakthrough benefits of Monster’s new M-Series® and ISF® cables is that they finally solve one of the most pressing issues in today’s HDMI universe, namely, making sure that the HDTV content from sources such as Blu-ray players and satellite receivers is actually being sent over the HDMI cable properly to your HDTV. Thanks to the new “smart” M Series® 2000 HDMI cable, as soon as you connect your devices you can see immediately whether or not the signal is being conveyed in standard definition, high definition or in the newest Ultra HD™ 4K resolution – eliminating guesswork when connecting set top boxes and other hard-to-use sources quick and hassle free.
This breakthrough capability is ideal for consumers and professional custom integrators alike, opening up an exciting new category in advanced connectivity, providing home entertainment enthusiasts with a new level of confidence and peace of mind, secure in the knowledge that they are always getting the very best out of their systems. The onboard HDMI Performance Indicators are made possible by technology developed by Spectra7 Microsystems Inc. (“Spectra7”), a high-performance analog semiconductor company that delivers unprecedented speed, resolution and signal fidelity to consumer and wireless infrastructure products. Spectra7 was recently created through the synergistic combination of RedMere and Fresco Microsystems. This new application of Spectra7 technology provides visual indicator of the video format up to and including 4K resolution, making it easier than ever before for consumers and installers to correctly set up TV displays and source components for maximum performance.
